Question about HP Compaq Presario 1700T Notebook
My daughter inherited a presario 1700 from her gramps and it runs so slow on windows xp that you can hardly use it... 256ram.. pentium III, and at least 20 gigs of hard drive left. Also has a Toshiba DVD drive. going up to 512 is planned but is the xp version not working well? I think it was an upgrade. should I restore the XP system, start over? I am wondering virus, but his macafee doesnt show anything.
But wait. There are even other very light and efficient operating systems. For a pc that old I recommend puppy os

Many things can cause a computer to bog down over time, including how well it was maintained, how often disk clean ups and defrags were performed. All Windows updates installed. Anti Virus kept updated. Too many programs loading when the computer starts. Unnecessary services running. Spyware, etc.
If you want a well performing laptop it would be best to start with fresh install of Windows.
